How to prevent Facebook from tracking your data through Firefox | Social networks

Facebook Container is a Mozilla plugin that allows you to access social networks with greater privacy protection in Firefox. As an extension, the program keeps Facebook, Messenger and Instagram isolated from the rest of the browser and prevents these sites from accessing cookies, as well as using user tracking mechanisms. The solution is a way to keep browsing history out of the reach of advertisers who use sponsored advertisements on major digital media.

The Firefox extension preserves the identity of the Facebook profile to make it difficult to keep track of other websites visited. Check out the step-by-step tutorial on how to prevent Facebook data from being tracked by the Mozilla browser.
